at 5:30 here at "30 rock" in new york city. well, we begin with the new urgency in the fiscal cliff negotiations with now just 21 days, three weeks to reach a deal. today president obama returns to campaign mode taking the fiscal cliff message to detroit. yesterday the president and speaker boehner met privately at the white house, their first face-to-face meeting since they agreed last week to clear everyone else out of the negotiating room. so what happened? well, neither side revealed anything about the meetings, only saying that the lines of communication remain open. but yesterday another influential republican, senator bob corker from the senate banking commission said his party should consider the president's idea of raising tax rates on the wealthy. >> there is a growing group of folks that are looking at this and realizing that we don't have a lot of cards as it relates to the tax issue before year end. we have one house, that's it. the presidency and the senate is in the democrat's hands. a lot of people are putting forth a theory and i think it has merit where you go in a
to find it quickly. >> good morning. it's monday, december the 3rd here in new york city. the christmas tree all lit up. with us on set, msnbc contributor mike barnicle, pulitzer prize-winnering historian jon meacham, author of "thomas jefferson." "fortune's" assistant managing editor leigh gallagher and political analyst, former chairman of the rnc, michael steele. and i'm willie geist. joe and mika have the day off today. there's so much to talk about, but we do have to begin with the ties, if we could. it's not just mike. mike's getting all the focus here this morning, and that is inexcusable. >> could i just say, in the words of speaker john boehner, we need to find common ground here, and we need to do it quick. >> there ain't going to be any between these two ties, my man. over here, good news, jon meacham will be number one on "the new york times" best-seller list this weekend. >> hear, hear. >> his book, "jefferson." bad news is he's going to get there wearing that tie with bunny rabbits on it. here they are. could we get a text poll? >> can i just tell you, i got this from haro
're on our way to the only lgbt synagogue in new york city. we're going to meet in the new building although it hasn't been renovated yet. >> where is this place? >> there we go. >> now what you do by coming together in this fashion is by creating a model for others. so that others will know that it's on your shoulders they get to stand. to live the life of complexity and texture and with all of the messiness that it entails. love is possible. you may kiss each other and break the glass. >> maz he will to have. >> i still feel like me. it meant more than me. a lot of more than i thought it would. it's not for everybody. i promise to still fight to change what marriage is as well as its availability to those who want it. >> decades from now, anybody who is supporting doma will feel like a complete fool. we're very happy that more and more people are finally understanding that you're standing on the wrong side of history to support something that denies people civil rights and we know we'll soon be part of our history. >> to love instead of hate. >> everybody should have the ability to hope fo
of state to new york city mayor, michael bloomberg's crazy speculation today allowed hillary clinton's future. remember who the deputy mayor is in new york city. maybe it's not so crazy. but first, today's trivia question. how many current senators are named john? any spelling of the name counts. you ever notice that some people just have a knack for giving the perfect gift? they put real thought into it. and find just... the right...thing. how do they do that? more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. pick up a ridgid jobmax multi-tool starter kit and get a free head attachment. for a professional cleansing device? join the counter revolution and switch to olay pro-x. get cleansing results as effective as a $200 system. guaranteed or your money back. olay pro-x. >>> a packed radar this morning. new reports that hillary clinton got a special job pitch. apparently so did david petraeus and neither one took the advice. new york city mayor michael bloomberg's successor will have big shoes to fill according to "the new york times." bloomberg called secretary of state h
. from sydney to new york city. the world turns the page to 2013. good day. i'm chris live in washington in for andrea today. deal or no deal? as vice president joe biden and senate republican leader mitch mcconnell continue negotiations, we just have learned that president obama will speak about the fiscal cliff at 1:30 p.m. eastern time. with all that happening, let's get right to our daily fix. nbc's kelly o'donnell on capitol hill, nbc's kristen welker at the white house, and jonathan capehart, washington post editorial writer and my colleague and an msnbc contributor. okay, kelly. the action is on the hill where it's been for the last few days. let's start with you. this is a fast-moving story. give us the latest perimeters of what appears -- i emphasize appears to be the start of a deal. >> well, it has been coming closer together, so we are told. the question is what will the president be saying, and senior advisors here as well as senators i've spoken to say they do not expect that he is making any nounment of a deal, so we'll wait for the white house to determine that for sure.
. let's take a look at the "morning papers." we start with our parade of papers, "the kansas city star." andrea, chime in here. despite a dramatic appearance from 89-year-old former senator bob dole, the senate failed to pass a u.n. disability treaty by just five votes. combat veterans like senators john mccain and john kerry delivered impassioned speeches, but dissenting voters said the treaty could pose a threat to national sovereignty. this is a stretch. more than 150 countries have signed the treaty designed to create unilateral rights for people with disabilities. it's actually based on america's ada act which bob dole helped pass more than 20 years ago. and you know, andrea, watching this american hero on the floor, a guy who is disabled, left part of himself, as he has said and others have said, on the battlefields of western europe, coming in and making a plea. i'm really surprised that this was killed by fringe concerns, fringe, fringe concerns. >> and it was, in fact, his fellow senators, several of the people who served with bob dole, who were the key votes here. and john ke
and get you out the door. it's cold in the burbs, nice in the city, similar to yesterday morning. you can bring that winter coat and gloves with you, and that will be about it. later this afternoon with a ton of sunshine. temperatures once again get into the 40s. even in areas of the suburbs, we should be at least low to mid-40s. so a very nice december thursday afternoon. let's talk about boston. you're one area that's snow starved. it doesn't look like any is headed your way with temperatures for highs in the 40s right through sunday and monday. this next storm should primarily be rain for you. you may get a little mix on sunday, but i don't think it's going to accumulate. we'll have to watch that football game sunday night, too, with the patriots and the 49ers. temperatures across the middle of the country looking a little bit on the cool side, but a lot better than it was. what a beautiful forecast. look at kansas city today. you're back up to 55. dallas at 61. only the southwest, los angeles to phoenix, could have some showers, maybe a stray thunderstorm. but for all your travel plan
persuasions. new york city mayor michael bloomberg called the press conference a shameful evasion of the crisis facing our country. new jersey governor chris christie told reporters that armed guards won't make schools any safer. and senator-elect chris murphy of connecticut tweeted this earlier today. "walking out of another funeral, he was handed the nra transcript. the most revolting tone-deaf statement i've ever seen." indeed. right before wayne lapierre delivered his remarks, a gunman shot and killed three people in pennsylvania. one of the victims was a woman hanging up christmas decorations in a church. let's turn to virginia congressman jim moran. congressman, good to have you with us tonight. appreciate your time. always good to have you with us, jim, on this program. thank you. >> thank you, ed. >> what is -- what do you make of today's press conference, the reaction of the national rifle association? >> well, wayne lapierre works for the gun manufacturers. he really doesn't represent the majority of the members who are far more sane and responsible than the leadership i
. >> can i say this quickly? go ahead. >> no, at the meacham residence in music city, usa, nashville, firsthand experience on this, people knock on his front door, and he sits by the fire in a cardigan sweater. do you or don't you? and people knock on the door. >> with cigars. >> little schoolchildren with their school books tied up with a belt. >> yes. >> and they come up and they say, mr. meacham, would you sign a book for me? and they come in and he signs books by the fire. >> that is true. >> he's huge down there. >> thank you. >> do you know why willie was there? >> why's that? >> he was being inducted not into the overall vanderbilt hall of fame but the student media hall of fame. at vanderbilt. >> what does that mean? >> it's a proud group. name grantland rice mean anything to you? >> looking at me, la ti freakin' da. >> i meant that as a compliment, people knocking on the door just for a moment with jon meacham. >> by the way, they are still clapping from election night. >> good. they're not upset about the alcohol problem? >> no, no. but the last question i got was, who on t
and the way that they do it better than they do in new york city. we happen to be much more conducive to allowing people to get conceal carry permits. we happen to think that if you go through the appropriate process to get the conceal carry permit, that's a good thing, but guns aren't for everybody, but as a constitutional right, you should be able to access. >> what about background checks? 40% of the guns sold in this country are sold without background checks? are there some steps that the nra should be accepting so that you can begin to get a handle on the proliferation of weapons in the hands of people who should not have them? >> i do verz who, and i have expressed them since the moment in tragedy happened and before. this intersection between use of lethal weapons and the access to lethal weapons and the mental health side. i think that's common ground. first and foremost, you don't want somebody who doesn't have the mental capacity to make these types of rationale decisions, be able to obtain a gun, and that is a difficult equation. when you are going to take somebody's const
and go home. we plan to head to congress. you plan to head to the city council. we plan to head to the white house. so they really did not have a plan "b." as for the gop, well, neither did they. they didn't expect that this president was going to come out with as strong of a proposal as he did. they thought first term obama was going to show up again, and clearly that wasn't true. you know, the plan that they presented today just isn't serious. it isn't serious if we say you're not going to raise the rates on the top wage earners. it's not serious if it says you're going to make significant cuts and try to tie entitlements to this so-called fiscal cliff which isn't a cliff at all. just like mitt romney wasn't a serious candidate, this is not a serious plan. >> karen, the president's plan includes talk not just of taxes, but also extended unemployment insurance. there doesn't seem to be any thought in the gop plan. did the gop just literally wake up today and think, right, i know, let's get erskine bowles' recommendation to the super committee and throw it out there. >> i think

's a commuter city. all of a sudden it's in the foreground and sandy is the biggest tragedy in the kurnt for a lot of people and who is leading it this big guy with a real jersey attitude. every time we talk to him now we're talking president. >> there's a reason all those wall street financers were begging chris christie to run last time, because they thought he could win and i think if he had run this time, he had -- he could have got all those blue collar guys in michigan, all the blue collar guys in ohio, all the blue collar guys in wisconsin. he's a blue collar guy and he would have won the south anyway. he would have been a great candidate. the question is is -- >> when did you start saying this? >> i said it on your show. the question is in four years can he maintain that. >> let's not talk about four years. let's talk about right now. don't do that. don't do what you just said. this is what it looks like right now. >> right now he would be a great candidate. >> shrummy, let's talk about culture. you're a student of popular culture. something says to me it's jersey's turn. it just
, here in new york city, i saw the movie k"zero dak 30." i thought it lived up to the hype. it was spell binding, especially at the conclusion even though you know how it ends. much of the advance attention has been focused on how the movie begins, with the graphic depiction of an al-qaida prisoner being harshly interrogated. they feared that american movie goers will get a distorted impression of the role of torture in our getting bin laden. the first half hour depicts the interrogation of a detainee. although film makers say he's a composite figure, he's based on someone who was harshly interrogated although not water boarded. a key break in the hunt for bin laden. when we eventually learned the courier's real name and found him, we found bin laden. in real life, one month before september 11, katani was denied admission to the united states when an astute ins agent wouldn't allow him to enter the orlando airport. katani returned to the middle east and he was later apprehended fighting with bin laden. he was to have been the 20th hijacker. part of the evidence, 9/11 ring leader awaited
destruction that are shooting down innocent children and other adults in cities all across the united states of america, and some reasonable regulations and some reasonable gun safety training and trigger locks and lockers and providing programs for those who may have some mental health challenges, but there is no reason for a civilian to have an automatic weapon. >> here is another point of view. you talked about people having a right to their own opinions. take a look at what u.s. congressman louie gohmert said about what would have prevented those deaths in newtown, connecticut. let's watch louie gohmert in action here. >> i wish to god she had had an m-4 in her office locked up so when she heard gunfire, she pulls it out and she didn't have to lunge heroically with nothing in her hands, but she takes him out, takes his head off before he can kill those precious kids. >> mark, and then mayor nutter, the argument from the nra side, not yet official but from that point of view on the gun owner's side is if we only had more people with guns, including teachers and school officials packing he
states, but cities as well. rahm emanuel, guns are a huge issue in chicago, given the recent spike in murders there. >> we touched on this earlier in the hour, that the nra is going to be holding a news conference on friday. they did release a statement yesterday expressing shock and sadness, quote, the nra is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again. i guess the question is what does meaningful contributions mean? is there any indication of that? >> no. the nra is a very close circle of people. we won't be hearing a lot in news leaks about this kind of thing. it is very hard to determine what they mean. in the past, they have not really been -- they haven't been willing to give any wiggle room at all to a lot of their policies. they have been very clear. there is not a lot of gray area in the kinds of things they advocate for. we have no idea what they mean by these contributions on friday. we have no clue that they're going to say. >> we'll have to wait and see. thank you. good to see you. >> thank you. >>> the search for a motive in t
